We had a few made up last month, cos a lot of folks were asking, they sold out so quick though, so we'll do another run of em soon, I think its scheduled for May.

Girmple Gerwer 8.75" (8.5"-ish over the trucks)
Ace 44, 3 washers inside each wheel, Indy risers
Spitfire 97a Conical Full 56mm
Reds/Jessup/Habitat 1" allen

Maiden voyage of this setup and I am very psyched. I was worried it would feel too small, but it doesn't. The nose feels substantial than on my cruiser and slappy crooks and noseslides go. The wheels are my new favorites, too.
I know we aren't madness shaming in the gear section, come on were better than this.

The shape is super similar to the polar football

Never had the Polar football but was always curious. This has some slight blunt-ness to the tip of the nose which is kind of cool.

My cat passed away recently and decided to join the Egg Club and take my mind off things.  RIP Milo the cat.

Never skated with Primitive before but I am REALLY into the shape.  Using this to skate around our DIY park (think lots of tranny).  Not too stoked on the graphic but whatever.

I think this may be the perfect setup for me at the moment, not really sure if I would change a thing.  These kinds of shapes / dimensions are hard to find right now in Europe.

Coming from an 8.5 with 149's, I was really surprised to be able to float some bs/fs ollies and 360s out over the coping.  I haven't had an all-new complete in awhile, so the stoke is very high.

 


9.125 x 32.187
169 Titanium Forged

Shalom.

RIP Milo. It is always hard to say goodbye to a friend like that. But hell yeah, eggs are so rad! Very functional.

I fixed the post so the image shows (got to make sure it has the .png or .jpg or whatever the extension is in there)

Milo forever.

Thanks pals, 14 years ago we picked Milo up off the side of the road (he had been hit by a car).  Took him to the vet for emergency surgery and he ended up living a full life of leisure after that. 



Is it a dipped board?

Yes, and embossed(?) .  Reminds of an everslick.  Coming from decades of stained wood so who knows

EDIT - Sorry, it IS stained.  But the top and bottom plys are slick?  Please enlighten me

Dang, this one seems like my ideal shape and size!  I also love a pink top ply. Not a big fan of the gold foil tho...

Alright. After lurking for a while I pulled the trigger. Well bullied my wife into buying me an egg for Valentine’s Day.  I must say, this might be the perfect shape.

FOS - I know you lurk here every now and then but goddamn you’re brilliant. Shape is perfect and for the love of god thank you for keeping a shorter wheel base in the line 14.125/14.25 is perfect. 14.5 feels like a boat to me. Also the razor top is brilliant too. Love it. 

I think I’m a believer.

Heroin “Eraseregg” 8.9X31.5 14.125 WB
The “razor top” feels so good (rounded bottom side wall and sharp top)
Indy 159 usa plates stock bushings
Indy hardware
Spit F4 Conical 53s
Swiss
Mob

How steep is the tail?

Yep, the new Heroin Egg boards have started shipping to stores. So they're up on some shop sites now.
The 7.9 Lil' Egg, the 9.0 Symmetrical Egg, and Dead Dave's Mutant Egg actually came back at 9.4 for some reason.
I'll post more detailed specs when the new catalog drops on the 11th.

That's because @darkthrone measures wb from the inside edge of the holes as opposed to the center of the holes.

Actually, starting from this catalog, the measurements will be from the center of the holes, from listening to feedback and something that Professor Schmitt posted about that the other day. So this next catalog (Which I just finished laying out) has the width and lengths, as well as the wheelbases listed.

damn, is this going to become a new thing between each brand?
im not against it, because it makes more sense center to center, but this will be like a new truck sizing fiasco/measuring flat across the board vs through the concave king of thing.
